Adoption is an incredible way to grow your family. Unfortunately, whether it is an in-country or foreign adoption, it is costly and not covered by insurance. However, we’re willing to bet that there are many people in your life that want to help you achieve your goal of being a parent! These are the people you should tap into to help you raise the money to bring home your child. Think of this like your “baby shower” before the baby. For many would-be-parents, we find the gift of the child is all they really want, and they’ll forego the onesies and extraneous toys any day.
